M. Chinnaswamy Stadium has a small boundary, and hence, it is easy for batsmen to find the ropes. In the shorter format of the game, it favors batters more than bowlers. So, you can expect a relatively high scoring match.

Let’s hope that the Rain Gods don’t come and stop the IPL game midway as cricket and fantasy cricket fans will be extremely disappointed. But that is a possibility that fans should be prepared for.

Match Prediction

Royal Challengers Bangalore has the biggest weapon in Virat Kohli, who will be supported by AB de Villiers and Brendon McCullum. However, this will not be enough to stop the juggernaut led by MS Dhoni.

Here are some reasons why Chennai Super Kings will win the match against Royal Challengers Bangalore:

  • CSK is captained by Dhoni and the vice captain is in-form Suresh Raina

  • Faf du Plessis is there to ensure the batting line gets even more strength

  • Imran Tahir will spin circles around the Challengers

  • Dwayne Bravo has discovered form and will perform once again with the bat

  • Sam Billings and Shane Watson will also perform as expected of them

  • Harbhajan will extract as much as he can from the pitch to pick up a couple of wickets and curtail RCB run fest

  • Lungi Ngidi will trouble the Royal Challengers batsmen without a doubt
